chamekke: St Rita doing an epic eyeroll (cha_eyeroll_rita_by_chamekke)

I have this sleepy old Dreamwidth account which I keep forgetting about. (This is not news.)

Now that LJ has updated its TOS, it seems like a good time to reimport my LJ and begin properly cross-posting. As far as I can make out, that only works automatically if you compose your posts here on DW and have them cross-posted automatically to LJ. (I wish LJ was more into switching, but there you go.)

Anyway, I've never actually cross-posted before, so this is me giving it the old trial run before I abuse my new powers.

This doesn't mean I'm going to flee LJ* - but honestly, my friends and fandoms are so fragmented across platforms, the new terms of service and Russiocentricity are only likely to speed the exodus. So I feel it's important to do what I can to stay** in touch.***

Now the only problem is whether anyone is still active on LJ ;-)


*Leaving aside its interface (less clunky than DW's), LJ also works nicely as an rss feed
**or, more honestly, get back in, as I've been largely AWOL from social media for at least a year
***as long as it doesn't involve moving to tumblr, which makes me weep.

I haven't 100% decided what to do about my LJ, but I'm close enough to the point of saying "Fuck it" and leaving that I'm glad to see you have an account here too. (And I just plain prefer Dreamwidth in...basically every way, to be honest, so anyone I can read here instead, I do.)

Tumblr is for looking at the pretty and then escaping rapidly.

Yup, that about sums it up :-)

P.S. I like your little dragon ♥

Still borderline active but mostly under this identity. I have several DW accounts but the themes are so aesthetically challenged that I'd need to use custom themes to survive there (even if I wanted to).

The problem I have with DW is I have no idea what half of it means! I think I may have just friended you there, but lord only knows - I'd hate to lose you, and I would've thought I'd already grabbed your ankles... but maybe not?
